Tenure-Track Faculty Member - Mathematics
Connecticut College invites applications for a tenure-track position in mathematics, to begin in the fall of 2014. Appointment will be at the rank of assistant professor; under special circumstances, applications at the rank of associate professor or professor may also be considered. Preference will be given to candidates whose research pertains to abstract algebra, discrete mathematics or a similar specialty. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or a closely related field, or must have completed the requirements for such a degree by the time of appointment.
The normal teaching load for a tenure-track faculty member is five courses per year, with a one-course reduction in the first year. Faculty members are expected to teach courses at all levels within the department’s curriculum, both to mathematics majors and to students from other departments. In keeping with the College’s emphasis on interdisciplinarity, we particularly welcome applicants who are interested in teaching courses or participating in collaborative projects that have connections to computer science, environmental studies, or other natural sciences. The Mathematics Department currently consists of four tenured or tenure-track faculty members (not including the position for which we are hiring), as well as one part-time colleague and two long-term visitors.
Connecticut College is a private, highly selective liberal arts institution with a demonstrated commitment to outstanding teaching and research. The College seeks creative scholars excited about working in a liberal arts setting, with its strong focus on engaged teaching, participation in shared governance, and active involvement in an institution-wide advancement of diversity. The College provides the following resources to untenured faculty members: a summer stipend for the first two years, a supplementary research fund, and a semester’s sabbatical after a successful third-year review.
Review of applications will begin on December 4, 2013, and will continue until the position is filled. To apply, please submit a curriculum vitae; copies of graduate transcripts; three letters of recommendation (at least one of which directly addresses teaching); and teaching and research statements. Applications must be submitted through MathJobs.org.
Preliminary interviews will be conducted in January 2014, either by telephone or at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore. Please indicate in your application whether or not you plan to attend the Joint Meetings.
